So there I was, surfing the net. Looking for images for our blog; when I came across photos of sunken ships & the remains of once majestic sailing vessels. I grabbed a few, imported them into Adobe Photo-Image, began tinkering & came up with a new ‘elements‘ mix cover.

This mix, built from the “hull” of a previously sketched/drafted ‘elements‘ play-list, incorporates several sequence revisions & is comprised of several new acquisitions as well as some old faves. I’ve been playing it a lot, lately . . . and it seems like a “keeper” to me.

Thanks & a big “shout-out” to Ronin Rhythym Records; not only for it’s primary brand (Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin) but for all the developmental bands & brands they’re shepherding!
